Jordan Takes Over: Sweet, Sweet Freedom! And Some Other Sh**

**The first Monday of every month, I let my muse take over the blog. I apologize in advance.**

You know what's great about December? Well, that I was born, but I'll get to that in a minute. What's great about December is that November is over!!! Start the fireworks! Cue the orchestra!

Wait, am I the only one who's happy about November being over? And by November, I really mean...NaNoWriMo. Ugh, it gives me chills just saying it. I suppose you're wondering how it went. But really, come on, do you seriously care?

Ugh. Fine. The final word count was 30,434. Not a whole lot done structure-wise, just the first two chapters, but a lot of random scenes that are later in the book. She never likes to write things in order. So, yeah, we failed. But it's kinda hard to work on something when your muse wants nothing to do with it. And for me, it was like being locked in a cage for a month. Well, guess what? Now I'm free! And I couldn't be more thrilled. Believe me, it takes a lot to thrill me.

So now that the horrible vampire shit show is pushed aside, we can get back to what really matters. Me, duh. We've got some serious editing to do. And I want it done fast. So chop chop. I'm thinking second draft by February, just in time for the *sigh* muse-iversary. Such a stupid word. But there is a whole big trip to plan. And besides getting the concert tickets, she hasn't even started. We've got a lot of work to do so I guess I'd better start kicking her or something.

Aaaaaaaand the best part! What I know you're all just dying for--the 100th post! December 15. It's coming up fast. Less than two weeks now. And it's on my birthday, of course. It's weird, turning 18 doesn't seem all that exciting for me. Well, because there's not much I'll be able to do that I'm not able to do at 17. I don't smoke and I certainly don't want a tattoo or anything. I could buy porn, I guess, but there's this great thing called the internet that hasn't exactly stopped me before. Plus, you know, technically I'll only be 2 years and 10 months old. But I don't want to confuse you.

Let me just tell you, the 100th post is going to be an extravaganza. A list of 100 fun facts, the synopsis, and possibly a title reveal. If the one she's thinking of right now actually sticks. I can't make any promises. Plus, it is my birthday, so I'll be expecting presents!

Hugs and kisses! I know, that was weird for me, too. I must be in a good mood.



  1. Nice to meet you, Jordan! Please don't kick Sarah, that wouldn't be very nice. But...you're not really interested in being nice all that much, are you? ;) Just look at it this way. Kick probably equals no presents.

    1. Hey, I can be plenty nice...to a few select people, anyway. But I do want presents. So maybe I'll just do some metaphorical kicking.

      That's right, I can take over comments, too!

  2. Hey, you're really going all out for your birthday post. Are the 100 facts about you, or just random facts? Like the fact that mushrooms create their own wind to spread their spores by giving off water vapor?

    1. Ok, it's not Monday anymore, so I'm taking the comments back. It was weird anyway, since my face is right there <--

      The 100 facts are basically anything about the book. I'm trying not to give every detail about the plot away so I focus on my writing process, too. There's random character details, how long it took me to write, music I've listened to, etc. I've got 55 written so far. It's difficult to come up with everything, but it's a lot of fun.

  3. Hey,

    Happy early birthday - and I hope your 18th goes better than mine (*LONG* story that involved attempted robbery (car!) a foot chase, apprehension by law enforcement and lots of drunken Irish patriotic songs :)

    Luckily, all worked out well... but if I ever write my own memoir... 18 will get its own chapter :)

    Have FUN :)

    1. Sounds very interesting...I don't think Jordan's birthday will be nearly as exciting :)
